Edward The Confessor - suggest you read the text while the photos download

 

Mel MJ carving Edward The ConfessorThese two photos show Mel Morris Jones carving a Portland Stone statue of Edward The Confessor for a client in Pennsylvania, U.S.A. during 1998. Unfortunately the original statue was decaying rapidly (outside). We were sent some photos and measurements and asked to carve an exact replacement - but 3 or 4 inches taller! This is what we did.

This client got our 'Bargain Of The Year' - as we really wanted to do this carving. Surprisingly, shipping to U.S.A. costs very little if you are prepared to wait 3 weeks for the journey. You can fly it, but the price then has the same rate of climb as the airplane!

He looks a little 'clean' at the moment, but will no doubt soon weather-in like the rest of the client's Portland Stonework has done.
